After going out with some friends, I was told I need to be more proactive about this dating thing. So here I am!
I think I'm your pretty average guy. I've been a high school bio teacher for the last 7 yrs, with the last few years teaching in Berlin, Germany. It was an amazing experience, but we can talk more about that later =). I moved back to Pasadena last year and I'm loving everything about being home; getting to hang with family and friends, and eating tons of great food!
Here are a few random things about me:
-I'm a sucker for romantic comedies. You name it, and I've probably seen/own it. If you don't like Love Actually, we're probably not gonna get along.
-Musically, I'm all over the place, depending on the setting. A few artists that are in my current rotation: Bon Iver, JayZKanye, MumfordSons, Mayer Hawthorne, The XX, The Lumineers (Sadly I only have a 6disc changer in my car, so I only get 6)
-I love cooking, but I hate doing dishes. A dishwasher is a must for me (the kitchen appliance, not the partner). I have zero baking skills though.
-I'll admit I'm a bit shy on first encounters with people I don't know. Obviously this doesn't lend well to being a single guy trying to meet new people, but I really open up quickly once I know you a bit.
-I'm a crossfit coach at a pretty local gym. I love the workouts but probably enjoy hanging out with my friends there more!
In terms of what I'm looking for..... who knows! I think that's why we're all here; to go on a bunch of dates and hopefully find someone that makes you light up. I guess the fun of finding the right one is about seeing the qualities of a partner that you never thought were so important.
What I do know, is that I need communication. We have to be able to talk freely and openly about what we think. As a guy, I'm definitely guilty of doing things wrong, but call me out on it and we're gold.
Basically, if you read through all this, give a guy a wink so I can do the gentlemanly thing and write first!
